I backed Orcs Must Die for the full package (both sides, all the extra packs), although now that it is over I am increasingly wondering if that was a good call. I was never going to back B-Sieged, so it was just a choice between OMD or saving my money.
Kickstarter seems to be the main tool for getting these types of games made. Given that often more emphasis is placed on the figures than on the game design, I am not surprised that a large number of these games barely hit retail before going out of print. A large percentage of them are just figures in a game box with badly designed rules. You have the occasional one that is disappointingly the reverse, with an awesome game bogged down by an obsession with figures (see Cthulhu Wars). Very few seem to balance out very well.
